About the Play

Wanda Petronski, the new girl in Room 13, is a Polish immigrant who lives in a shabby house and doesn’t have any friends. Every day she wears the same faded blue dress, but she tells her new classmates that she has 100 dresses at home. Her classmates tease Wanda about her 100 dresses until one day she disappears from school. As guilt overtakes the children, they decide to find out what happened to Wanda and to make amends. But is it too late? Bullying, friendship, and forgiveness are at the center of this play adapted from the beloved Newbery Honor Book by Eleanor Estes.
